I want to go into a career in journalism. What is the better a-level to take: language, lit or combined? I only have one option left so I appreciate reasons why.

It doesn't really matter tbh unless you need a specific one for uni. Pick the one that interests you more and in which you'll get a better grade.

As alleycat393 says, it doesn't matter particularly.. English language is more analysing current articles and the language features that the author has used, looking at purpose and effect. Lit on the other hand involves looking at books and poems, analysing the characters and how the author uses certain lexical choices.
Just to throw a spanner into the works, I was always told a language is a good place to help you get into journalism... Feel free to look into this, but perhaps it's something to consider? I currently do A Level English and am predicted an A*
